The fashionable all-new 2023 Yamaha XSR125 Legacy has got what it takes to get you there in less time. Its timeless looks and eye-catching colors stand out wherever you go, and the full-power 125cc 11kW engine and agile handling make every trip into work or college a whole lot more fun than going by crowded public transport.

It’s the newest bike in Yamaha’s Sport Heritage line up, and comes with a premium specification that includes LED lights and full LCD instruments just like the larger capacity XSR700 and XSR900 – as well as a lightweight Deltabox frame and USD front forks that give a confident and comfortable ride.

More than anything, the new 2023 Yamaha XSR125 Legacy is all about becoming part of Yamaha’s stylish and unique Faster Sons movement that includes a whole package of clothing and accessories that match your attitude. It’s the sure way to having more fun and freedom, and is ready to make things happen for you. * Limitations and restrictions may apply per country under applicable local law

The VVA (Variable Valve Actuation) motor is restricted to 11 kW of powerThe maximum power output helps make the 125 Euro 5 compliant and accessible to beginner motorcyclists with a limited license. The SOHC single produces its maximum of 14.8 horsepower at 10,000 rpm, so you can enjoy revving the little motor up as you flit around town.

We see the typical XSR styling cues, with wire-spoked wheels upping the ante. Yamaha steps a bit farther back in time by going with the traditional wheels. Also, compared to the MT, the front tire is lower profile, though they are 17-inch hoops at both ends.
The XSR125 gets scrambler-style Michelin Karoo Street tires. Even though it’s a street-only motorcycle, the Karoo Street tires with some off-road capability.

Yamaha sticks with modern-styled suspension. The 2023 Yamaha XSR125 Legacy gets an inverted fork—though smaller diameter than the similar for on the MT—and linkage single-shock. One old-school attribute of the suspension is its lack of damping adjustability. The frame is a modern twin-spar design.

We recognize the family resemblance to the larger XSRs. You get a stepped bench seat and a uniquely shaped fuel tank. Round is always big with XSR designers, and the 125 has a round headlight, taillight, and speedo. Although they’re round, the headlight and taillight are LEDs, and the speed is LCD. Don’t miss the triangular steel plates with three round holes below the seat—another XSR signature.

The 2023 Yamaha XSR125 Legacy is part of the world of apps. You can check out accessories on the free MyGarage app, and keep track of your rides on the MyRide app. Both are available for iOS and Android operating systems.
